Older, but no wiser!
Mmmm, what is about Son's?? I allowed my lad to take my Khyam Highlander on a scout camp, unfortunately, it came back stinking of vomit. Son was made to wipe it up and the tent was then left airing for 2 weeks.... He thought he was taking my Biker to a cadet camp 2 weeks ago and was rapidly convinced that this was not happening, so i had to pick up a Tesco 25quid cheapie for him to get SWMBO off my back . Turns out to be a pretty decent little tent, sleeps 2 easily with a proper inner and outer and decent poles!Update.... to do the run last year, the tent I bought brand spanking new, off the trading paradise commonly known as Ebay. Sadly I couldn't do the run. Anyway later in the year my son went to the Summer Jam reggae festival and took the tent, for its maiden voyage. I've just checked it... Of the 3 sets of poles only 2 sets are broken, although still workable. On the plus side he gave me a camping chair as compensation. I have the worlds biggest sleeping bag and the most comfortable sleeping mat on the planet (The more I say it the more I believe it!). Counting down.......6 sleeps
Hope to see the most comfortable sleep mat on the planet soon, if it isnt at least 6" deep though, it ain't comfy enough...! Camp chairs are good. So much more civilised to sit on a proper seat watching the sun go down, sipping a continental beer!
For tent spares here is pretty good I found, quick and competitive. Send the bill to your Son.....
